I started cooking in KCBS contests on a lark."
Me too !!..
"Thought it would be fun. It was for the first two or three."
was for me also.
"Afterwards I began realizing I didn't want to devote the kind of energy, time and money it takes to compete on a big time basis"
I would agree, neither did I. So, I just stuck to about 6-8 a year.
"I just can't compete with Pros who do contests almost every weekend."
Neither could I, but what other activity readily lets you compete with the big guys??
"It's less expensive for me to play golf at my "expensive" country club and I have just as much fun."
I can't argue that, you're probably right
"The poll above shows there are about 60 people (10%) making a significant income from bbq and I assume that includes contests. I see the same names at the top every weekend. I congratulate them and wish them well."
This is still a hobby.
"I wouldn't play Tiger Woods for money so why would I go against the top teams in America to see how I stack up. I know... unless I'm lucky, I gonna get my hat handed to me."
If i was half way good at golf, do not think for a second I wouldn't play Tiger woods.. You could learn a lot.
"Now we have all this mess over the BOD and I haven't a clue what that's about but I suspect buried in there somewhere money is an issue. Until I am sure the BOD is completely transparent I will remain on the sideline. I'm sure there are those who have just sighed with relief."
Who knows what is up with the BOD.. I'm pretty much fed up with it myself.. But, I'm still competing anyway. They haven't stopped me.
